Ghost Strong Return Roller J-Cups 2.0 - Monster Lite

Manufactured by Rogue

We have partnered with the team at Ghost Strong to develop this exclusive Rogue-manufactured version of the Return Roller J-Cup 2.0. Our design keeps all the key features of Tim Grissel’s innovative original, including the patented conical rollers and multi-radius concave receiver that ensure each barbell returns to the front of the J-cup in an optimal position for the next lift. The only changes involve practical production upgrades in two different formats: Standard and Premium.

All versions of the Return Roller J-Cup 2.0 can comfortably accommodate barbell shafts ranging from 1” (25 MM) to 2” (50 MM) in diameter. The compact design makes it less likely that an athlete will make accidental contact with the J-cups when benching or squatting, and the roller feature enables much safer and easier centering of the barbell prior to lift off. 

Ghost Strong’s original threaded pin attachment and 1/2” thick backplate have been upgraded to a fully welded, reinforced pin with a complete channel (including the front lip, bottom, and backplate) made from a single piece of 3/8” formed steel. In addition, for our premium model, we swapped the original zinc-plated pins with stainless steel–making these the first Rogue J-cups to use that material.

We have continued to use Ghost Strong’s extra-tall backplate design (complete with Ghost branding) to give athletes a large target to hit when re-racking, and every clasp is still tested to meet Ghost’s strict tolerances, ensuring a tight, secure fit on a 3x3” upright. All welds are filled in to prevent any sharp edges, and an extra piece of UHMW plastic has been added to the front lip of each cup to protect the barbell–this is in addition to the UHMW that Ghost has always included for rack protection on all three sides of the clasp.

Important: This version of the Return Roller J-Cups is paired with a set of 5/8” mounting pins, making them compatible with any Rogue Monster Lite Series rig or rack. This same design is also sold separately with 1” mounting pins for use with Rogue Monster units.

Key Features of the Return Roller J-Cups 2.0

Ghost Strong’s Patented Roller

Compared to the wider landing area of a traditional J-cup, roller-style J-cups are designed to immediately catch and guide a racked barbell into a more narrow, secure position, preventing unnecessary jostling of the cup or friction on the bar. Ghost Strong’s design, devised by Tim Grissel, goes even further than other roller J-cups on the market, as the patented conical rollers and multi-radius concave receiver ensure each racked bar returns to the front of the J-cup in an optimal position for the next lift, with reduced risk of accidental contact during a workout and much easier centering of the bar before lift off. Rogue has adapted this design with several new manufacturing upgrades to produce one of the most precise and dependable J-cups on the market.

Customizable Design

There are a range of customization options available with the Return Roller J-Cups 2.0. At an added cost, the standard composite roller can be replaced with the Premium model and its extremely durable Silicone Carbide Coated Steel roller.* The standard texture black finish can also be upgraded to a premium medium gloss finish in nearly a dozen different colorways; great for matching the J-cups to a gym’s existing color scheme (all color finishes also come with a stainless steel pin rather than powdercoat). 

*Please Note: The steel roller is built to last a lifetime, but it will gradually wear the knurling of barbells more than the composite option.

Function great. Paint chips
I love how they work. Awesome to finally be able to adjust 500+ in my half rack. Only problem I had is they chip. My stainless ohio power bar is destroying the paint after only two sessions. Stainless Ohio power bar is eating up the rollers too but that’s expected.

Almost perfect
The positive - The roller cup is high quality! Definitely looks a lot better than the previous versions. I got the black composite rollers and it spins well! From an overall quality perspective, it’s pretty solid! - Price is not that bad for a roller cup. Negative - Fit is very snug for my RML rack. This may be a good thing for some folks but it gets annoying how much effort is needed to move the roller cup. - When I ordered these, the estimated shipping was 4-6 weeks…. but I waited almost two months to receive it. Other comment - Per Rogue website: “ Will wear a bit over time, especially if used in a high-volume gym, but can be replaced.” but we don’t have the option to buy replacement/ more roller cups. It would be nice to have the option to buy (additional) composite or steel rollers. I thought Ghost used to offer this in their old website.

Rogue Ghost Roller Cups
Cups came in today and I was blown away. The packaging was incredible on these.. Rogue has really improved on this in the last year. It also had a page and signature of who built and checked everything for quality (nice touch). The cups themselves are fantastic, great welds, rollers move smoothly and the red I got on mine looks great. The most impressive part is the tolerance of mine for the UHMW on all sides. I had watched videos online that said it was loose… mine are the perfect tightness on my posts. Takes a bit of pressure to slide them on… but then they don’t move out of place when you are adjusting the bars on the rollers.

Ghost Strong Roller J-Cup
Item was packaged exceptional and arrived in pristine condition. Similar packaging should be considered for some of Rogue's larger items such as racks. Manufacturing quality is phenomenal. Ghost's original roller J-Cup was great and Rogue improved on its design. I will likely buy a second pair to replace the standard J-Cup that was included with my rack so I can bench and squat without moving the J-Cup. Nice job Rogue.

Work awesome and great fit and finish
I've used these for a few workouts and really like them. I'd never used roller j-cups before this. I have the composite rollers because I value the knurling on my bar more than the roller. I hope Rogue comes out with the option to buy replacement rollers since the composite ones will likely eventually wear down after a looong time in a home gym. The lower price point on these compared to the past made them a great buy when before I would have never considered them. In my photo, I used a Sharpie to outline the ghost, so it is normally just black.
